Millar - the boy who never grew up
on 3 July 2013
As he admits (or his wife told him), Millar was often 'a bit of a dick' - he doesn't come across as very self-aware even on reflection and it is quite a self-absorbed account. It gives some insight into pro-cycling, but where I think the Hamilton biog is better is that Hamilton explains why he thinks he's such a strong cyclist (a willingness to push boundaries, take risks and absorb pain) - Millar didn't really analyse his own performance. As with the Hamilton, I still doubted the veracity of some of the details - 'I was clean when I won this, but not when I won this...' Some of the chronology is a bit difficult to follow, but I loved the bit on Brailsford who was there for the drugs bust. Very readable.
